Virus from hell

  noel_courtney 21:49 30 Mar 2009

After two weeks of every type of scan, rebuild, reinstall repair etc I still cant fix this. Desk top task bar and Icons keep disapearing. Programs can be acessed via Ctrl-Alt-Delete new task but then CPM locks at 100%. Tried an SFC scannow with an error telling me cant scan proctected system files. PC Spyware freezings when it gets to a file called windows\system\uniq.tll and then eventually PC turns itself off. Tried to find this file to delete it but its not visible to the eye. Even tried an unsucessful reformat this morning with a message saying cant perfrom this function as the "Drive door" is open.

Give up?

Anyone got any ideas?

Maybe try this,Its pay for but you get 1 months trial and it will delete anything it here.

It may be a BIOS Virus, or its in the Partition boot sector

I take it that you cannot open windows explorer, if this is so then these two threads may help:

To Remove from Partition you have to clear all Partitions then create new ones and format

buteman thanks for this link I will try it.

Jak_1 you are correct I cant open windows explorer albeit only for a split second before it disappears. I have tried what youve suggested but to no avail.

Woodchip I,m a dummy when it comes to PC,s. I do know my hard drive C:/ is also partioned into D: and E:. Removeing and clearing these I,ve got no idea.

If you only Have a Restore CD I suggest you try using it

I have tried to boot up from XP disk and perfrom a repair partition etc but PC just wants to do a complete re-install while not highlighting partitions

Repair is no good you have to clear the Partition Info

Is there any online instructions you can point to which may help to do this partion clear?
